NEW YORK —

One of two New York hospitals that had to evacuate patients at the height of Superstorm Sandy is set to begin reopening.

In a statement on its website, officials at NYU Langone Medical Center say "almost all" practices are scheduled to restart Monday though some doctors will see patients at alternate locations.

A message to staff says the hospital doesn't know how long it will have to use the different locations.

At NYU, seven backup generators failed during the storm surge on Monday night, forcing the evacuation of 300 patients.

At Bellevue Hospital Center, some 700 patients had to be evacuated after the power failed. An official there said Thursday the hospital could be out of commission for at least two more weeks.
